Deploying QAS remotely – no more sneaker net!
One of the things that QAS customers will appreciate in the new Quest Identity Manager for Unix console is that QIMU can be used to deploy the QAS agent on *nix box remotely. No more need to script, visit or otherwise figure out how to deploy the agent. In addition to remotely installing the agent you also have the ability to check the Active Directory readiness of the targeted machine. This really simplifies the installation of the agent by double-checking all of the settings on that remote host to ensure that QAS can be successfully deployed and started.
I’ve already heard from a number of customers who have used QIMU to deploy, test and put QAS into production all without technical help from a consultant!
